The BitLicense proposal appearing to be something so suffocating for Bitcoin businesses, many of them would rather not do business with the state. But rather than simply leave New York and hope that the policy doesn't become popular nationwide, the Digital Chamber of Commerce wants to enlist you to help them educate Congress on a more reasonable approach to Bitcoin regulation.
While many in the community would argue that Bitcoin cannot be regulated by its very nature, others would point out that government attempts are coming either way and it would benefit the community to express what kind of attempts are reasonable and which are unenforceable or nurturer the technology.
With that in mind, the Chamber of Digital Commerce is asking for volunteers that live near by or can travel to Washington D.C. and help educate legislators on appropriate legislation for digital currencies.
They are calling it “Bitcoin Education Day.” The event will take place on August 29th and will have an open comment period about the BitLicense proposal. The only qualification one has to have is a willingness to wear business attire and “conduct themselves with the highest level of professionalism” while having at least “a basic understanding of blockchain technology.”
Participants will receive a certificate confirming their participation, signed by the president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce.
The event will begin at 9am and will finish at 7pm. It will consist of a briefing and coffee session, two sets of meetings with congressional members (split up by a lunch) a debriefing and a closing party.
If you believe you would be a good candidate to help explain the admittedly complex world of cryptocurrencies, you can send an email to the Chamber of Digital Commerce through the form on their official site.
